Absolutely nothing wrong with an Amal, been running one on my E50 with no problems. You do need to hookup and use the choke on starts...no biggie. Old skool Triumphs came with Amal carbs, I'd like to build a bobber one day.

Re: amal carb?

whoa, is that pool ball the choke lever? thats awesome butnut.

Re: amal carb?

I run one. I love it. It gives me absolutely no problems. And It drives my puch pretty fast for comperable setups with other carbs. good luck finding jets tho.

Thanks Jon. Yeah, the choke is just a friction lever so I chopped up a 10speed bike lever and made the choke a little fancy.

Re: amal carb?

I forgot how nice that bike was.

Re: amal carb?

Not that I think it has anything to do with it, but my bike with a 15mm amal takes out bikes with 24mm mikuni's
